          Jennifer VanTuyl explained that they had been before the board previously and had received

          site plan approval for an assisted living facility in part of the site. Part of the building at that

          time would remain as a hotel and evaluating the project during the construction process the

          applicant has determined that the project could use additional space. Therefore, the applicant

          would like to eliminate the hotel use so that the assisted living space could be expanded. There

           would be no increase in the number of beds. The plans are for the applicant to close on the

          property prior to November 30th and has authorized the preparation of all the details for the plans

          that the Village Engineer, Larry Paggi has requested and which is required under the Village

          Code. We are asking the board to consider granting approval of the proposed site plan with

          the hotel use being eliminated and that section of the building would be used for memory care.

           Victoria Polidoro, Planning Board Attorney reported that the board heard back from Dutchess

           Chairman Klingzahn entertains a motion.

           Theresa Cuchelo makes a motion to approve the resolution for Promenade at Route 9.
